Trike riders are good citizens

While riding a trike, we are close to the ground, and can see junk that will cause flat tires on both bikes and cars. Trikers can ride right by nails, screws, a any think bad on streets and roads. It is easy to pick up this junk and save someone problems. I do this all them time, and think other trikers do the same.

Thanks for helping out!! I am usually goung to fast to see the debris, or there is so much that I cannot realistically clean it up other than to "sweep" it off of the main travel areas.
I assume you are riding a recumbent trike.
Take care,
Jesper
